Overlooking the bay of reef-fringed, deep blue water, and framed by stands of tall tropical trees and the occasional fruit tree, is an outdoor setting that begs to be used to read, sip afternoon pre-dinner drinks or watch the resident pod of dolphins that seem to visit the bay every day.
Just 90 minutes from Gurney airport, your journey to this resort paradise takes you through Alotau and down to the southern tip of the PNG mainland, before crossing to the north coast where your final part of the adventure will be by speed boat.
Covered walkways link the main reception and dining areas with the rooms themselves, which are huge. Two Queen size beds, air conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, fridge, safe, satellite TV channels, a well-appointed modern bathroom, and what may be the ultimate private balcony.
There is also a family bungalow and on the waterfront, a huge villa that sleeps up to 8 people.
